I'm in publishing so I love the fact that these are called "CMYK"
http://kitsunenoir.com/blog/2007/11/...iphone-covers/

but Vaja's ivolution is one of the most attractive ones I've seen:

Hate most silicone and clear cases...it's like showering in a raincoat.

Not wanting to get into comparisons of GA vs IS vs BG here, but I'd like to know if anyone can absolutely confirm if the Ghost Armor:

1) Has a single back piece that covers the bezel on the 3G iPhone
-or-
2) Has separate bezel pieces

Basically I don't want the bezel covered as I think it tends to look terrible. Most of the shield products cover it part way and that looks even worse.

I really only want a shield to protect the back. When I'm doing anything more active I'll use a silicon or leather case over the top.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks,

Tom

I dont understand how you could possibly hate on this product? I absolutley love it!
Based on that bottom left photo, there does seem to be more orange peel that I thought / hoped for, but still doesn't look as bad as IS.

I think I need to see these skins in person to get a true feel for them.

How is this case working out for you so far? I'm a huge fan of Agent 18, but have only had the EcoShield so I'm wondering how this fits the 3G. I'm trying to justify spending $37.00 after shipping on a case that I've not seen in action. Also, if anyone out there has an Agent 18 promo code for the iPhone cases it would be awesome if you would post it.

Can't believe I'm the only one with this case here!

I ordered it from the Apple Store and got it three days ago and have been using it since. It replaced an Agent18 (black) that I really didn't like. It's called the Griffin Nu Form and I LOVE it! Thin, dockable and stylish.

Seems like you're the first one with anything different. At least you got it pretty quick. My apple store here in Nashville doesn't really have anything in stock so for now mine's running around naked....Kinda like it though.

Just ordered a Gelaskin. I have one on my MBP and I love it. I'm not expecting this to really protect my 3G from falls or any serious damage, just to keep it from sliding around on my car's center console, and to give it a fresh look. It will also prevent the back from getting all scratched up over time, so that's a plus. As for the front, I'm keeping it naked. I've read a lot about good experiences with no protection so I'm goine to give it a shot

I'll post an update when it comes in the mail and I install it.

What i plan on doing is getting a screen protector either bodyguardz or ghost armor (front only) and keeping it inside a case-mate naked for the 3g. Do you guys think this will interfear with the touch screen's performance?

I just ordered this case and am waiting for it to get delivered. Does it have a rubbery feel to it even though it's hard case? Or does it feel like the back of the phone itself (i.e. true hard plastic)? I don't like the rubbery feel to some griffin cases and I may return this one if it feels the same way.

Just got the Agent 18 clear case with Power Crystal Film on front. Love it.

I want to show my white 16gb phone as much as possible.

Contour flick white doesn't look as look as I thought i would.

I just finished installing it...

Not sure what to do.

Did you really buy all those? I am having trouble deciding which one and price is a factor (it's not that I can't afford it, it's that I don't). Seems like a lot to spend. With all that research, pictures would have been good.

I'll let you guys know how the ghost armor works out after I get it. I'm thinking that if the screen portion doesn't work out well for me, I'll probably take that part off and go with the Power Support Crystal Film. Or if the whole thing sucks, I'll try the BSE next.
Please let us know your opinion. I am very sensative too and don't like the IS orange peel look. The Power Support Crystal Film is almost $23 just for the front after shipping - can this be purchased in stores?

Thanks for showing that! It would be great for swim workouts!! I have already inquired about a 3G version

I am leaning in this direction, it even comes with a cleaning film to make sure the dust is all gone (I cleaned so thoroughly before applying IS and didn't see a think, but there's stuff under it and it's difficult to remove once it is there, very frustrating). Where can one get this cost effectively?

Anyone know of a case for the 3G like the DLO that holds the headphones on the back?

Anyone have that or a similar case? Wondering if it makes it too big for a pocket?

Don't want a clip or slip case.

Thats a nice sock for it. I might get one of those until I really find a case that I want to go with.

I'm kinda liking these. At first (a few days ago, it wasn't even something i'd consider) but after walking around nyc today, i kind of felt like a target with my new iPhone. I almost feel like i should cover it up a bit. They stand out. I spotted someone from in the car just walking across the street with one.

I bought the Contour Flick, and I don't like it. In less than two days, the back of the case is getting all scratched up, and while I like the flicking open of the bottom for docking, it leaves the bottom of the iPhone unprotected.

After looking at malencar's Nu Form pics, I went for the black model, and it should be here by next week. This will be my 3rd case! And I still need a car charger.

Oy, upgrading.

Looks kind of like the incase slider. I don't think they have theirs out for the 3g but i like the way it looked on the original. Nice find

The best for protecting and looking good is the Capsule from Switcheasy. I'll wait for their 3g version and get it. It doesn't scratch the chrome bezel like these crystal cases. Dropping it ( it will happen ) is not a problem with these guys. The iPhone will survive without a scratch with this on.
